TEA THAT REALLY POPS OUT
Genmaicha also called brown rice green tea, is the Japanese name for green tea combined with roasted brown rice. It is also known as "popcorn tea" because occasionally, a few grains of the rice pop during the roasting process and resemble popcorn. It has a light yellow hue, and its flavor is mild and combines the fresh grassy flavor of green tea with the almost nutty aroma of the roasted rice. If you’re looking for a unique tea that warms from the inside out, this one is worthy of your attention.

Japan, Shizuoka Shimizu
Known to be the largest tea producing region of Japan, Shizuoka is also one of the country’s most beautiful tea-growing areas, framed by the towering peak of Mt Fuji. The region is climatically perfect for tea cultivation, with fresh water, sun, heavy mists and nutrient-rich volcanic soil. It’s also home to Shimizu, one of the oldest plantations in the prefecture, famous for its ancient traditions and top-class tea. The tea produced here is known as ‘brown rice tea’ – it’s actually a combination Japanese Green Tea and roasted rice, which lends the tea its unique flavour.
